Since it sounds kind of Spanish, is it the azalea?

Blimey again! (I typed it correctly this time :) ) I must show this to my wife, she won't believe it.

So, double quick fire & staying in Spain... what is Spain's highest mountain?

It's that old quizzing bugbear, technically you could have two answers - the highest Spanish mountain overall is Pico de Teide in the Canaries, while the highest point on the mainland is the Mulhacen.

Well Kerry, I was aware of that, but I'd argue that you can't have two answers, as the Canaries are part of Spain, so Teide is the highest mountain in Spain. Had I have been looking for Mulhacen, I would have specified the mainland. It is supposed to be quick fire, after all .

Well done, your go.

Apologies for gumming up the thread - which four-letter Spanish word connects a Mexican football team, a Beckham child, and in keeping with the last clue, the capital of Tenerife?
